Derby Day at Epsom Downs and a multitude of people crowd to watch the races: dukes and dustmen, bishops and beggars, privileged ladies and prostitutes.

The gamut of Victorian society, though, is also a hotbed for crime and crooks of all kinds. With the country a-flutter in the run-up to this national occasion, events reach fever pitch when a disembodied head is discovered on a passenger train at Crewe; the first in a murky course of events that takes in murder, fraud and race-fixing.

Detective Robert Colbeck and his assistant are assigned to the case and are soon snarled up in a web of skulduggery stretching across the country. Soon, however, they are forced to ask themselves: just what is someone prepared to do in order to win? Download and start listening now!

    " Another great read from Mr Marston, Colbeck on a mission once again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 K.B. Hallman | 9/16/2012

    " I enjoy this series, but I find myself thoroughly annoyed with Colbeck every time. He's too smooth. The character would be greatly improved with a few character flaws. Once in a while, it would be nice if he were wrong. "

    " Haven't read this author before. It is good so far. "

    " Head in a hat box, and Derby horses. Good. "

    " Another in the Inspector Colbeck detective series and up to the usual standard. Its trains, murder and Victorian England, what more could anyone want???!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Scott | 3/21/2011

    " The fourth book in the series continues with core characters and weaves descriptions of the UK from a social-historical viewpoint with a good whodunit. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series "The Brighton Belle". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Harry Lane | 10/27/2010

    " Very pleasant reading, typical in some ways of British mysteries. This series is set in the 1830's at a time when railways were still quite novel. It captures the social scene of the time and the plot is quite believable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marshanpoet2 | 7/7/2010

    " Another greatly enjoyable story about the railway detective. Likeable characters with some amusing moments of black comedy. Looking forward to the next in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda Meggs | 3/19/2010

    " A good book. The mystery is very well thought out. I think the personal relationships could do with a bit of work as they sometimes seem a bit cold. Otherwise ana enjoyable read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melita Sheppard | 12/3/2009

    " This book really delves into British history, Marston's narrative is really enjoyable to read. I really like the series, it helps build an understanding of how Britain developed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anita | 9/21/2009

    " Not up to the usual standards of his Elizabethan stories, but not bad. Liked it enough to finish but wouldn't run out for others in the series; someone else might though. Will say it is a good bet for old rail fans, ie, 100+ years back when carriages still reigned supreme. "
